Great review! I have been debating and researching for about a year now and I think I've settled on this cooker. My only thought is if I want to stay with the 16" or 20" your comment made sense to me about wasting fuel to keep the 20" going so I am pretty sure I am sold on the 16". I mostly cook for my family and maybe a few friends, occasionally I have a decent cook for deer camp or maybe a 4th of July get together, but I don't think those justify the extra $200 plus the fuel that you mentioned. THANK YOU very much for your review, it was very helpful!
